Gala House is a restaurant and cafe made up of a two-storey heritage style townhouse located along Muntri Street, George Town. It serves various pasta (quite well known for its fusion style), western cuisine as well as coffees and other drinks. Additional space is available at the upper floor and the balcony too for those who enjoy a sip of coffee or beer while overlooking the street below.
Previously, the same townhouse is also the home of another restaurant called Soul Kitchen.

Cozy in the Rocket is the new Amelie Cafe with a spacious dining area and still retains its old vintage settings. Operated by the original couple owners, Cozy in the Rocket is located at the corner of the junction of Armenian Street and Beach Street, a few meters away from the old spot.
Soul Kitchen is a little restaurant/cafe converted from a pre-war 2-storey house located at Muntri Street, George Town. The relaxed atmosphere and retro decoration of the cafe give it a great place to have a brunch or a cup of coffee amidst the old heritage streets of the town. The cafe was founded by married couple Michele and Tonio who met each other in Munich.

Amelie Cafe at Armenian Street and located right next to the Cheah Kongsi, is a nice little place that serves great food.
Update: Amelie Cafe has now moved to become Cozy in the Rocket.
